AUDITION TAPE: Jesse Paulsen

Posted May 14th, 2009

For FATEBOOK, the online/realspace party/performance hybrid that’s starting now and culminating in a live performance at the Live Arts Festival this fall, creating a richly interactive environment is key.

New Paradise Laboratories fostered this through the audition process, in which prospective cast members posted videos of themselves to YouTube. And video will be deeply integrated into the final performance, which features video-enhanced environments, live camera feeds, and a participatory performance of the final story of your FATEBOOK friends.

Here’s the tape of one cast member, newly minted Haverford grad Jesse Paulsen, whose tape is an adorably non-audition audition.
